Spanish Lavender – A Poem

Trip to the grocery store

Paused in mid stride, to admire

Fragrant pots of Spanish lavender.

Clearly a captivating crowd-pleaser,

As the lineup also came to an abrupt halt,

While shoppers consider the plant.

Meanwhile, to the dismay of the orderly crowd,

Someone spontaneously,

Read the growing instructions out loud.

Space the plants apart in a row

To give them room to grow.

Prune in Fall and trim in Spring.

A room full of aroma, plucked bouquets bring.

Keep their ‘feet’ dry but water well.

The more heat they receive

The more fragrant the blooms smell.
